Lip Hydration Treatment with Lip Fillers at Cerulean Medical Institute in Kelowna BC

Do you constantly battle dry, chapped lips with frequent application of lip balm? One of the important benefits of lip fillers is their ability to hydrate the lips and give your lips a dewy, glowing complexion. We will be discussing lip fillers’ hydrating ability and offering additional recommendations to maintain well hydrated lips.

What Are Lip Fillers in Kelowna?

Dermal fillers are used to fill in deep wrinkles and add volume to the cheeks, temples, jawline and the chin. Lip fillers in Kelowna are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers specifically designed to plump the lips and smooth vertical lip lines. Compared to other injectables, lip fillers have a thinner consistency to safely treat the delicate skin on the lips for a natural looking youthful appearance. Options for your lip enhancement and lip augmentation at our Kelowna skincare clinic include Juvéderm Volbella, Teosyal, and Belotero;  which will be discussed in more detail at your consultation.

Can Lip Fillers in Kelowna Hydrate Lips?

Lip fillers in Kelowna are made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that moisturizes the skin and connective tissues in the body. It is found in many medical-grade skincare products and as an active ingredient in dermal fillers. One of the most impressive properties of hyaluronic acid is its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. When used in fillers, hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules closer to the skin’s surface, creating a gentle lift that adds volume. The result is simultaneously enhanced and hydrated lips with a soft texture and radiant appearance.

Lip Filler in Kelowna Benefits

There are many reasons why lip fillers are an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment. Additional benefits of lip fillers, along with their hydrating abilities, include:

1.      Natural Enhancement with Lip Fillers

Hyaluronic acid works naturally in the body to plump the skin. Depending on the results you desire, we can give your lips a natural enhancement in size and shape.

2.      Improved Lip Symmetry

Lip fillers can be precisely injected to improve asymmetry and balance out the proportions of the upper and lower lips. You can also accentuate the Cupid’s bow for a heart-shaped pout.

3.      Target Signs of Aging

Hyaluronic acid helps maintain skin elasticity and volume. As we age, hyaluronic acid and collagen in the skin decrease, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Vertical lip lines or perioral lines around the mouth can significantly age your appearance and hyaluronic acid lip fillers are an easy way to combat this effect.

4.      Lip Fillers are a Non-Surgical Treatment with Less Downtime

Lip augmentation is available with surgical implants, but this requires a longer recovery process and can leave noticeable scarring. Lip fillers achieve similarly beautiful results without these downsides. Most patients do not find the injections to be painful and the entire lip filler treatment takes less than 30 minutes.

Who Can Benefit from Lip Hydration with Lip Fillers in Kelowna?

Almost anyone who wants to enhance and hydrate their thin lips can benefit from lip fillers. Since hyaluronic acid is biocompatible, the risk of an allergic reaction is minimal. Dr. Chetty will also assess your lips and ask about your cosmetic goals to create customized results with your desired lip size and shape.

Other Lip Hydration Recommendations

There are many easy ways to keep your lips hydrated after lip filler treatments. These are some of our favorite tips and tricks for soft lips and hydrated skin:

Lip Balm

Lip balm will keep your lips moisturized to prevent dryness and painful cracking. Moisturizing products like Vaseline are also a great option to lock moisture in. For added protection, find a lip balm with SPF to prevent sun damage on the delicate skin of your lips.

Lip Masques

Lip masques contain ingredients like peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid to give your lips an intense nourishment and refreshment. These masques can often be applied to the lips and left on over night to lock in moisture and give your skin a deep infusion.

Don’t Lick Your Lips

Licking your lips can provide temporary relief but once the saliva evaporates, your lips will feel even drier. When you lick your lips, all you do is temporarily wet the skin since saliva does not have moisturizing properties. You should also avoid biting or picking at flaking lip skin since this will worsen dryness and lead to painful open wounds.

Use a Humidifier

Dry summer heat or cold temperatures in the winter are common causes of chapped lips and dry skin. Increasing the humidity in your home can help you maintain soft skin and lips without a dehydrated look and feel.

Drink Water

One of the best ways to maintain soft, dewy lips is to regularly drink water throughout the day. Water hydrates the lips and flushes toxins out of the skin to maintain its beautiful glow and overall quality.
